Each year our school receives Sports Funding. This money allows us to support our children to become active and involved in a variety of sporting activities. At Harrow Lodge Primary School, we are committed to ensuring that our children receive a high quality P.E. education, delivered by experienced sports’ coaches. Children also have the opportunity to attend many sporting clubs both during lunch time and after school. We use a proportion of our P.E. funding to pay professional sports’ coaches to run a range of extended clubs. A growing number of our children will also experience broader competitions outside of school, competing in a range of borough competitions.
The sport funding can only be spent on sport and P.E. provision in schools.
Here at Harrow Lodge Primary School we recognise the contribution of P.E. to the health and well-being of our children. In addition, it is considered that an outstanding P.E. curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of our children, as well as teaching children to be resilient, disciplined, respectful and determined, both in the sports field and the classroom.
We are committed to ensure that all pupils receive at least 2 hours of high quality well-planned P.E. per week, delivered by confident and well trained sports’ coaches. The successful delivery of the curriculum supports all aspects of health education within the school.
Monitoring of lessons ensures they are planned and delivered to a high quality, guaranteeing both pupil achievement and enjoyment. There is an annual sports day with a picnic for parents and pupils and a mixture of team and individual competitive races. Our talented and motivational sports’ coaches run a range of after school active sports clubs every day including football, basketball, gymnastics and dodgeball for all ages from Reception to Year 6.
Partnerships are strong. Through the Havering Schools Sports Collective, the school takes part in partnership competitions which include, cross country, rugby, athletics and cricket. Our school teams do particularly well in these competitions, click here to see our latest accomplishments.
